The Hôtel Parc Saint-Severin
Live like a Parisian
In the heart of the Latin Quarter
Welcome to Lutetia! The neighborhood, which has retained its original layout from the Middle Ages, is made up of a tangle of exciting alleyways. Rue de la Parcheminerie, home to the Hotel Parc Saint-Severin, is a quiet pedestrian street, ideal for relaxing just a few steps from the hustle and bustle. The road takes its name from the parchment merchants who established businesses here in the 14 th century, when their trade flourished and attracted considerable numbers of visitors.
Aside from the ancient history of this location, the views over the rooftops of Paris, Notre- Dame Cathedral, the Saint-Séverin Church and its cloister, the Pantheon, and even the Eiffel Tower, are what that lend the Hotel Parc Saint-Séverin its inimitable charm. In the rooms, original works by 20 th -century artists adorn the walls, including Art Deco stencils by Jacques Camus, surrealist landscapes by Roger Chapelain-Midy, iconic characters from Jean Hélion’s figurative period, and abstract watercolors by Jean Bazaine. Each unique space is designed to offer a warm, harmonious atmosphere.
Stroll along the quays of the Seine River perusing the bookstalls, discover the Sorbonne University and the Fontaine Saint-Michel, venture to the other side and witness the majestic Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral, the picturesque Île Saint-Louis or the timeless Jardin du Luxembourg. Paris’ most romantic neighborhood offers a trip back through time, from Roman ruins beneath the Île de la Cité and the Musée de Cluny to renowned Gothic structures such as Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Sainte-Chapelle, and the Conciergerie. In the evening, head for the little streets around Rue de la Huchette, which are packed with restaurants and small theaters!
